Hidden trackable information in games sucks!

I play games for fun and pursuing the goal to win the game is fun! :)

The GeekBuddy Analysis doesn't show GeekBuddies who own a game if they neither rated nor commented it.
The same is true if they have a "yes" in the other three status entries of the GeekBuddy Analysis "Want", "Trade" and "Wishlist" (unless they have rated or commented the game).

This feels like a bug to me.

I regularly want to use the GeekBuddy Analysis as a way to find GeekBuddies who own a game I would like to get to know. Quite a few already slipped through because they hadn't yet rated or commented on the game. Which could easily be a particularly good situation for us to get to know the game together - if only the GeekBuddy Analysis had informed me of it!

People could also want to use the GeekBuddy Analysis to find out which GeekBuddy to gift a game to because they want it or have it on their wishlist. Quite a few of them won't have rated or commented it yet.

(I found a previous thread already highlighting this problem, but not as a bug but as an unanswered question how to change it: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1687870/geekbuddy-analy...)

If this is added, then I hope it's a selectable option, and not changed to only work this other way, since (for me), the system works as intended, i.e. showing the opinions (ratings or comments) of geekbuddies about a given game.

I'm with Russ on this one - this system is intended to show geekbuddies' opinions of games, not ownership status.
